How long do methadone babies stay in the hospital for detox

My niece was born 13 day ago addicted to methadone.  She was born full term and a healthy 8 lbs 11 oz.  She was put on morphine and clonidine the day after she was born.  She is currently on .22 mg.  How much longer will she have to spend in the hospital?  Should her mother breast feed?
